Ok, I'll admit it.....I'm tired of Fashion Week. Last week we learned some (arguably) fascinating lessons about style and trend but now, after watching "Gisele walks for Balenciaga" and "Victoria's Secret Angels sit front row at Chanel", I am willing to kill the next columnist who describes a collection as "an urban metaphor". So I'm back to clothes with a bit more "fun" than "fantasy".....clothes that real women want to talk about.

White. And not just white....ALL white. A white top with white pants, white booties and a white jacket thrown over the top. What makes this new are the textures the whites come in. Eyelet lace mixed with satin paired with suede. It all works together to shout "Spring 2014" or separately to go with other pieces in your wardrobe. For example, black and white. Geometric slashes of it. I have a pair of diamond-patterned heels I can't WAIT to wear. They blend seamlessly with my polka dot peplum top, white tuxedo jeans with the black stripe and a black and white cabbage rose-printed cardigan I got at a yard sale for $3. You get the idea. Or, if you're not ready for all black and white, use your new black and white shoe as a fun way to perk up jeans and a black T......maybe with black and white sunnies???

How style savvy is THAT!!!!! And I didn't use the term "urban metaphor" once. Doesn't that prove that "trend" is today, but "style" is forever???
